BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 At this point, Herges’ paychecks rely less on his stuff than on the memories of strangers, when GMs that remember seeing him get a few big outs a few Septembers ago take a flyer on him to fill out their bullpen. Then when the GM realizes he’d be better off giving those few low-leverage innings to that kid in the Texas League with the big fastball and the anarchy symbol on his backside, Herges gets his walking papers. Lather, rinse, repeat.
2009 Prior to the season, Herges' name showed up in the Mitchell report, and he admitted to performance-enhancing substance use, albeit well in his past. He probably could have better used the boost in 2008, as his stuff took a big dip; back problems didn't help. The Rockies declined his option, making him a free agent. Herges is a fastball/changeup righty without much of a fastball anymore, so there's not much left here.
2008 Herges was the Rockies' best reliever in the postseason, tossing seven shutout innings, including a dominant, strike-out-the-side performance in Game Two of the World Series. In 11 1/3 postseason innings over 10 appearances, Herges' career ERA is 0.00. Does that make him clutch, or do you have to be famous for that?
2007 Herges is the chain restaurant of the relief pitcher world. There are loads of pitchers just like him, he doesn`t do any one thing particularly well, and teams always wind up settling for him rather than intentionally seeking him out. He`s currently a free agent, and unlikely to thrive outside of a pitcher`s park.
2005 Stunk up the joint, leading the Giants to conclude he didn't have the intestinal fortitude to be a closer. Of course, only two years earlier fans in Montreal just thought he sucked. Speaking of the Expos, between Herges, Brower and Hermanson, it's a wonder the Giants didn't go with a full array of forgettable ex-'Spos. Was Bryan Eversgerd unavailable?
2003 Last year, we noted Herges “takes great advantage of Dodger Stadium; if (he) ever signs anywhere else, his career could definitely explode into a froth of run scoring.” So why couldn’t Omar Minaya see this? Not that Herges cost much—Wilkin Ruan and Guillermo Mota won’t be missed. Still, his bullpen blow-ups happened at the worst possible time, when the Expos were on the edges of the playoff hunt. This made Herges his fair share of enemies, even though a decent finish made his numbers respectable; but even then, did they (ERA 4.03, PERA 6.13)? He’s Pittsburgh’s problem now, after Dave Littlefield inexplicably traded a decent prospect in Chris Young to get a prime non-tender candidate.
2002 Herges was the foundation of the bullpen, logging nearly 100 innings, including several stretches in which he was asked to pitch in high-leverage situations. History hasn't been particularly kind to pitchers who've had this kind of workload, but Herges held up fairly well, partially because of a lighter workload late in the season. He takes great advantage of Dodger Stadium; if Herges ever signs anywhere else, his career could definitely explode into a froth of wild run scoring.
2001 Gagne's inability to get past the fifth inning and Orel Hershiser's struggles left a lot of middle-innings work. Matt Herges stepped in and owned those innings, inducing ground ball after ground ball in getting games to Mike Fetters and Terry Adams. He should decline in 2001--this was his career year--while still being worth the roster spot. Another good reason to mock the Jose Mesa contract.
1997 Got people out at two levels last year, but I’m not sure how. Doesn’t throw real hard, doesn’t have great control and his breaking pitches didn’t impress me. Of course, I don’t have to hit off the guy. He’s a journeyman, and probably no prospect, but I think he’s earned an invite to camp.
